Reclaiming Dinosaurs For Jesus

“Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee. . . . He moveth his tail like a cedar. . . . His bones are like bars of iron” (Job 40:15,17,18).

Every creature that was ever made was made by Jesus (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; etc.). Jehovah Jesus, therefore, may be thought of as the one doing the talking in today’s text. Scripture directly applies Old Testament Jehovah passages dealing with creation to the “Son” (Hebrews 1:8,10–12; cf. Psalm 102:25–27), and Jesus Himself admonished disciples for being so slow to connect Him with the Old Testament (Luke 24:25–27).

Secularists believe dinosaurs became extinct long before the first man ever came on the scene and use fossil remains and fanciful reconstructions of these awesome creatures to instill doubt into unsuspecting minds.

The creature depicted in Job 40 however is described as “the chief of the ways of God” (v.19). Small-tailed hippopotamuses do not seem to fit this title; dinosaurs, with cedar-like tails, do! If Jesus was talking about dinosaurs, then “chief” (even “rex”) makes sense. Moreover, Job was personally familiar with these creatures—they lived at the same time as man.

These creatures should mentally be connected with their Creator, and parents should teach children to make the connection. If artists deserve credit, then Jesus, as the Creator who called into being these great creatures which the artist depicts, should receive the greater praise.

Behold the bones of these creatures in museums! They were made like “bars of iron,” but they too, like the foundations of the earth, “shall wax old as doth a garment.” The Creator who “laid the foundation of the earth . . . remainest. . . . thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail” (Hebrews 1:10–12).
